AJ McCarron 2nd in Heisman Voting; Manziel 5th; Tre Mason 6th

AJ McCarron. - Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The drama was not really about who would win the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night but how the runner-ups would finish.

The fact that AJ McCarron finished second is a great sign of respect for what he has achieved and I for one am proud of him.
